Love Breathing ( (こい) () (きゅう) Koi no Kokyū?) is a personal Breathing Style created by the Love Hashira, Mitsuri Kanroji. The Love Breathing itself is originally branched out from the Flame Breathing. The forms and techniques that are used in this Breathing Style can only be successfully performed by Mitsuri due the unique constitution of her body that renders her incredibly flexible and agile, but still possessing inhuman strength due to her muscles being eight times denser than a normal human's, allowing her to deliver fast and powerful blows and move unhindered due to her body not being physically bulky.
